Hello, my names John Boucher (JB). I’m 19 and I grew up on a farm with 17 horses in New Brunswick. After I graduated high school I had no interest in today’s “rat race” so I moved to Saskatchewan to live on a large scale cattle farm where i slept in the loft apartment with no bills (except phone) and saved up my money. After the farmer turned sour towards me I decided to move further out west to my sisters place and found a landscaping job. Having to pay rent at my sisters and realizing all the stress they had with bills I didn’t feel like being in the same boat. So I came up with a plan to go off grid BILL FREE, DEBT FREE and TRULY FREE. Along my life I picked up on the skills I knew I truly would need. Anyone can fish in some water but it takes an experienced person to know where the fish are at and what type would be where. I enjoy the woods for that I truly feel myself when I’m hunting/fishing/exploring. I’m handy with a tool and I’m a great problem solver, not to mention my imagination will help my camp grow into a paradise. So if you’d like to join me on my journey feel free to message me here me

Looking forward to the future.

    Hi there John, I can say we’re extremely alike in what we want to do and what we can do. I’ve spent my life working ad going to schools early just so I could graduate ad get a Batchelor’s in psychology and my first year culinary. I’ve spent a long time by myself in the woods with survivalist training and the like. I’ve been dying to do this and I’d love to talk more about it. Email me anytime

I am 20, from Massachusetts but moved about 20 minutes from orlando when i was 14 so now im currently in florida. Please contact me for more info if you are serious.
